THE BLUES COME AROUND
WRITER HANK WILLIAMS
(C) Once I was happy as I could be, But I let a gal make a (G7) fool of (C) me, And ever since she let me down, The blues come around when the (G7) sun goes (C) down. Chorus: Oh, the blues come a-(F) round, Oh the blues come a-(C) round, Lawd, the (G7) blues come around, Ev'ry evenin' when the sun goes (C) down. As long as the sun is in the sky, These doggone blues never make me cry, But ever since she left this town, The blues come around when the sun goes down. Repeat chorus: I built my castles very high, And then she went and said goodbye, And ever since she tore 'em down, The blues come around when the sun goes down. Repeat chorus: Once she called me all her own, But now she's gone and I'm alone, And ever evenin' I'm sorrow bound, 'Cause the blues come around when the sun goes down. Repeat chorus:
